Mauricio Robles

Management & Entrepreneurship - Alumni

Mauricio Robles is a 2017 Graduate of the Master’s in Human Resource Management program.

Mauricio Robles came to the University of Tennessee on a diving scholarship with limited English. He obtained an undergraduate degree in Management with a collateral in Human Resource Management. He then started his Master’s in Human Resource Management while interning at Denso. Because of his work ethic, HR knowledge and an international background, he was hired and sponsored by Monterey Mushrooms and recently promoted to HR manager.

“As I interned at DENSO, I was looking for a position and upon graduation, I obtained a full-time position in HR at Monterrey Mushrooms at the Loudon, TN facility.  I was promoted and moved to the Princeton, IL facility as HR manager. This location is smaller and has allowed me to make a bigger impact. I obtained my SHRM-CP as I grew in my position at the Loudon facility.  Taking Management and HR classes and being on the diving team, allowed me to see I wanted to work with people and teams.”
